Use Case: A beauty brand based in New York can use Data Cloud for Consumer Goods to unify loyalty data and syndicated consumer data.

Service agents no longer need to jump between screens, knowledge articles, and account history — allowing your service agents to not only increase productivity, but also free up time for providing upsell and cross-sell opportunities. 

Use Case: A service agent at a household consumer goods company can use Einstein Copilot Account Summarization to quickly review a large retailer's recent interactions, orders, customer satisfaction scores, and promotion locations. This summary helps the agent address the retailer's questions about a recent order and suggests a product to upsell during the resolution.
